I am a big fan of this series. I enjoy how Reilly writes; to me, it feels very fluid, and very engaging. The characters are very reminiscent of a James Rollins setup, but I really like that. Great followup to Seven Deadly Wonders. This was a book I raced through, couldn't put down.

SPOILER ALERT…the book wasn't bad, but I HATED the author's idea of "being original and fun" by treating the book like a "long chapter" and basically cutting the book off with no conclusion, no real end, nothing. This is one of the stupidest writing styles I have ever seen
